New home for Pork­stock plus Reep­ham gets a food fes­ti­val

PORK­STOCK, the fam­ily fes­ti­val for food­ies, is mov­ing this year. The event, which be­gan as a bit of fun among friends 14 years ago, will set up camp at the Nor­folk Show­ground on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 14.

Run en­tirely by a team of hard­work­ing vol­un­teers, all prof­its go to char­ity and, for the sec­ond year in a row, the ben­e­fi­ciary will be Nel­son’s Jour­ney, which sup­ports be­reaved chil­dren in Nor­folk.

Dur­ing the day Pork­stock is a free fam­ily fes­ti­val for mu­sic and food, from hand­made fudge to ar­ti­san cheese; de­li­cious pre­serves and chut­neys to lo­cally pro­duced wine, beer and spir­its. There’s also a cook­ery stage with demos and talks from some of the re­gion’s lead­ing chefs, butch­ers and restau­ra­teurs as well as a few very spe­cial guests.

As the sun goes down the Pork­stock Party kicks off, an adult-only, tick­eted event where mu­sic takes over from food as the main at­trac­tion. There will be an ar­ray of live bands on the main stage and the Gin Palace will be re­turn­ing with an elec­tro-swing ex­trav­a­ganza pro­vided by the out­stand­ing Tal­lu­lah and the Good­times Repub­lic.

Last year’s events drew 4,000 vis­i­tors and raised £10,000 for Nel­son’s Jour­ney.
